AllFreeCrochet would like to be the first to thank each and every one of you for helping out with our Baby Hat Charity Drive. We cannot believe how unbelievably generous you all are. We received a grand total of 1,788 baby hats!! Some of you donated as many as 40 handmade crochet baby hats, which is just as generous as those who donated just one. We had hats come in from all over the country including New York, Texas, California, Washington, Florida, Tennessee, Rhode Island, Michigan, Oregon, Hawaii and our very own, Illinois, just to name a few. Many babies will go home nice and warm, and in style because of you. We know that Northwest Community Hospital is also blown away, impressed and very thankful for your generosity. It’s amazing how we can come together as a crochet community. It was also nice to read all the notes that came with some of the hats as this drive has touched many lives, brought back memories and created emotions. This is definitely one charity drive we as a community will never forget.
And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for! We have randomly chosen a winner to receive the Bernat Prize Package of 13 skeins of yarn! Congratulations to…..Karen from Folsom, La.
Once again, we would like to throw out a big THANK YOU for everyone who donated a hat, or two or 40. This means more to us and the hospital than you will ever know. If you would like to continue making hats for the hospital you may do so, but please do not send them to our office. You can continue your efforts at NCH or any hospital near you.
